Fighting talk

Anyone else noticed the slew of Army, Navy and RAF recruitment ads on TV at the moment? Can't help thinking there's a discrepancy between what they say and what they mean.

What they say: "Be the best".

What they mean: "Do you like to travel? Fancy escaping all this horrid cold weather and jetting off to the warmer climes of the Gulf for sunbathing and sightseeing? Of course you do. What's more, we'll pay you handsomely for it! All you have to do is agree to have your holiday interrupted every now and again by gunfire, which may possibly be directed at you. So, if you're prepared to take a bullet in the name of Bush, Blair and a few multinational petroleum companies, the job's yours!"
